chapstick assasain

Unread postAuthor: Mr.Sandman » Wed Jun 25, 2008 1:52 pm

this is my smallest coaxial gun. I made it because I could not make a bigger gun and the fact that I am broke. I used a pen tube for the barrel.
I have nothing more to say so go ahead and enjoy :D

Ah nice mini!
Do you think it is small enough to be called a pen gun?

Oh and what dimensions does it have?
What pressures do you use?

I would be scared to fire it higher than 5 psi for fear of failure.
Hmm wonder if chapstick would split or fragment.

Very nice. I am completely fascinated by minis. How do you fire it and what do you fire?

EDIT: How did you get all of the rubber off of your schrader?
